Seeking the Unknown (p. 27): Replace the paragraph immediately after the Risk Modifier formula call-out with the following text: "Consult the Extraordinary Results Chart as normal to determine the effect on your spell. However, you may also add or subtract all or part of your Risk Modifier in order to get a Discovery in addition to the normal effect of experimentation. Thus, if you had a Risk Modifier of +3, and rolled an 8, you would get a Modified Effect. You could also subtract 1 to get a Discovery in addition. The effect of the spell is still modified. You cannot use the Risk Modifier to get a supplementary result other than a Discovery."

Exempli Gratia: Original Research (p. 30): In the third paragraph, delete the second half of the second sentence. (That is, delete "which he can reduce by 1 (his risk factor) to a 4 for 'no extraordinary effects'".)

The Transformed Folio
R: Touch, D: Year, T: Group, Level 45, Ritual
This changes all the pages of a book into those of a different book for the duration of the spell. You must touch both books when casting the spell, and because the spell is harnessed, you may end it at any time by concentrating. If the original book is damaged or altered, the contents of the duplicate will change to match it. Milvi occasionally use this spell to lend the same book to several different magi, or to communicate with each other over a long journey by linking a central book to a Redcap's travel journal. The spell also allows for vis boosting, so that you may copy a book using an Arcane Connection from wherever you happen to be.
(Base 1, +1 Touch, +4 Year, +2 Group, +5 intricacy; Boosted, Harnessed)

The Tireless Flight (p. 102): Change the calculation information as follows: (Base 10, +1 Touch, +1 Conc; Boosted, Harnessed, Tethered)

A Window of Singular Direction (p. 141): This is not wrong as it stands, but can only affect dirt walls. Increasing the Base to 4, and the spell level to 15, creates a version that can affect stone walls, which fits the descriptive text better.

Methods and Traditions (p. 46): Delete the clause beginning "to affect anyone but yourself..." from the final sentence of the paragraph on Meditation.

Powers and Effects guidelines (pp. 48-56): Wherever a guideline mentions (level - X) or (magnitude - X) for the power of an effect, replace with (level + X) or (magnitude + X).

This does not apply to the second, third, and fourth General guidelines for Blessing, which give bonuses capped at a maximum of +3 to either die rolls or aura tempering.

Give unto the Lord the glory... (p. 49): The Base should be 5, and the overall level 30.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil (p. 50): Replace the first sentence of the description with "This blessing bestows Magic Resistance from the Divine realm, equal to the effect's level."

The Mysteries, Revised Edition


Chapter Four (p. 25): Should be "Chapter Four", not "Chapter Number".

Elements Form Opposed Pairs (p. 51): This paragraph should be an insert. The following paragraph is about seasonal enchantments.

Duplicate the Mechanism: Change the level of the spell to 25, and the Target to Ind. A woven piece of cloth is not a Group Target, so neither is an armillary sphere.

Craft the Mechanism (p. 52): Drop the level to 20, delete the (In) requisite from the spell description, and change the Target to Ind.

Degree of Mercury (p. 55): Last line, replace "Major Magical Focus" with "Minor Magical Focus". A Magical Focus in a House is Minor.

Divination Bonuses (p. 62): Delete "or Casual" from the introductory sentence.

The Great or Consummate Talisman (p. 70): Replace the contents of the insert with the following text:

Blending with Substance allows the magus to incorporate additional items into his talisman, as the Minor Virtue Great Talisman does for separate talismans. However, Inscription on the Soul does not allow the magus to attune new bonuses without working specifically on the talisman.

If a magus wishes to Initiate Consummate Talisman, then the magus can accept the required Ordeal.

Invocation Magic and Names of Power (p. 77): Add the following to the final paragraph: "although the combined bonus is still limited by Magic Theory."

Consummate Talisman and Names of Power (p. 78): Add the following to the final paragraph: "although the combined bonus is still limited by Magic Theory."

The Structure of the Philosophers of Rome (p. 124): In the second paragraph, replace "True Naming" with "Hermetic Synthemata", and "Hermetic Evocation" with "Spell Binding".

Summertime (p. 26): Drop "Criminals" from the Free Choices, as it is actually a Minor Boon.

Boons, Hooks, and Governance Styles Insert (p. 31): This did not get laid out as a table. The lower part of the insert should look like this:

GovernanceBoonsFreeHooks
AnarchyUngoverned-Divided Loyalty, Fractured Council
Autocracy-Autocracy, GerontocracySuperiors, Vis Salary
BureaucracyLiterate Convenfolk
Guild, Center of Excellence
DemocracyVis GrantDemocracyFractured Council, Suffrage

Farming Peasant (p. 45): In Abilities, delete Climb (no such Ability), rename Craft: Farmer to Profession: Farmer, and increase Folk Ken to 3.

Laboratory & Sanctum (p. 105): The key should read 22: Ingredients, 23: Refuse Tip.

Non-Standard Laboratory Routines (p. 108): An illustration occludes a small section of text on page 108. The relevant portion of the first paragraph reads:

"If a magus decides to work non-standard hours, choose one (or more) of the following routines each season. He may combine multiple routines..."

and the relevant portion of the second paragraph reads:

"A maga may also choose to work fewer than the standard ten hours per day. There are no special routines for this - for each hour fewer, she simply loses 10% of her Lab Total or Advancement Total for the season."

Ice Cavern (p. 118): Replace the possible Terram Specialization with Aquam.

Minor Supernatural Flaws (p. 119): The first "Minor Supernatural Flaws" heading, in the left column, should read "Free Supernatural Flaws".

Transforming the Mind (p. 93): Delete "though she can still master the spells she has learned" from the penultimate sentence.

Elder Runes Example (p. 128): Opening the wand for enchantment costs 2 pawns of Vim vis, not Terram. It takes one pawn of Rego vis, not Terram vis, to inscribe the Ice rune, and the enchantment costs 4 pawns of Terram vis (final level 40). Thus, it takes a total of seven pawns, so Hephaestion charges 14 pawns, plus the seven used in enchantment, for a grand total of 21 pawns.

Automaton Example (p. 132): Towards the bottom of the first column, replace "Eleven pawns of Terram vis are needed to open the magpie for enchantment." with "Eleven pawns of Vim vis are needed to open the magpie for enchantment.".

Root-Cutter (p. 126): Root-Cutter is not an Ability, so there shouldn’t be any specialties listed. Those specialties could be included among the examples above for Mythic Herbalism, and one already is.

Major Supernatural Virtue: Craft Magic (pp. 131-132): In the last example on page 131, replace "and he spends a Confidence Point to give him the final +3 increase" with "and he rolls a 3". On the first line of the main text on page 132, add "or Supernatural Ability roll total" after "Casting Total". Replace the last sentence of the example with "He must roll, and the total determines how strong the fear is. Unless he botches, however, the item will function for anyone who plays it, as an Ease Factor of 9 is sufficient to inspire fear".

Assarting (p. 84): The insert entitled "Story Seed: Swift Assarting" was laid out over several paragraphs of text. They should read as follows:

Assarting

Hermetic scholars know that the weather in Mythic Europe is notably drier in the 13th Century than it was in preceding years. This has made farmable a great deal of land that was previously marginal. Coupled with the population boom being experienced in Europe, one of the simplest ways of expanding a fief is assarting: carving new cropland or meadow from fertile wasteland. This process has been occurring for much of the last century, so marginal land is becoming increasingly scarce.

A single strong laborer with proper tools clears one acre of lightly wooded land per month, if he does no other work. This means that villeins who are assarting land work much slower than an acre a month, because their other duties take precedence. Many lords use only local labor, or hire a small team of famuli who assist with the clearing and then are kept on to work the lord's increased demesne, so that assarting is a gradual but continual process that takes years to have a marked effect.

There are many ways of assarting land magically. Changing the topography or soil type to allow large field farming where it was previously impossible, altering water flows for irrigation, and removing trees or reducing them to ash are all simple and popular strategies.

A covenant that secretly clears itself land using magic alarms nearby lords. The sudden appearance of cropland in an area that was previously waste indicates to neighboring nobles that the new lord of has hired an enormous workforce. This, it is assumed, will cause predictable problems when it is dispersed.

Conquest

Taking land by conquest is rare, among the lower nobility, in most of feudal Europe, because it requires political skill and perfect timing. Conquered land must be taken from someone, and the lord of the dispossessed noble appears weak if he does nothing. In some cases, he will do as little as demand a fine and fealty from the invader, but this is seen as a pathetic response by his other vassals who, sensing their lack of security, form coalitions of mutual support that are often provoked into open war. All nobles know this, so unless a lord is beset by more important issues, conquest is rarely able to succeed in the extended term.

Seal the Breach (p. 116): Increase the level to 20. Add "Ritual minimum level 20" to the end of the calculation information.

Mounted Movement Rates (p. 127): The first three columns of numbers have the wrong headers. "Horse's Quickness" should be the heading for all the numerical columns. The leftmost column, currently headed "Horse's Quickness", should be headed "-3 or less", the second, currently headed "-3 or less", should be headed "-2 to -1", and the third, currently headed "-2 to 0" should be headed "0". The columns to the right of this are correct.

Effects of Mounted Movement (p. 127): The Walk/Amble or Trot and Gallop columns are misaligned. They should look like this:

GaitPenalty to Missile AttacksFalling DamageExtended Action Ease FactorDefensive Bonus (Optional)
Walk/Amble or Trot-1(Horse's Size +2)* + stress die6+1
Gallop-6(Horse's Size +6)* + stress die12+6



Example Maneuvers Table (p. 133): The entries in the "Disarm" line are out of order. They should be "Any Attack"; "Defense or Evasion"; "9".

Melee Weapons Table (p. 137): The Cudgel (under Great Weapons) should have 2 Damage levels.

Melee Weapon Table (p. 137): The availability for the Staff (under Great Weapons) should be "All", not "Early".

Missile Weapon Descriptions (p. 139): Add a new sub-heading "Melee Weapon Descriptions" immediately before the Falchion.

Melee Weapon Descriptions (p. 139): Replace the description of the Bastard Sword as follows: Sword, Bastard: A large, late-medieval sword suitable for one-handed or two-handed use. If used two-handed, treat it as a great sword. If used one handed, its Str and Load remain at +1 and 2, respectively, but all its other statistics are those of a long sword.

Armor Materials (p. 139-141): Add the following sentence to the end of the Plate armor paragraph: "The complex armor design rules do not cover 15th century full plate."

Rival Magic


Prolonged Apprenticeship (p. 19-20): Replace "eight years" with "15 years" on page 20.

Ranges and Durations List (p. 23): Replace "+5 levels" with "+1 magnitude".

Changing Range, Duration, and Target (p. 24): In the first paragraph replace each "add 5 to the level" with "add 1 to the magnitude".

Resisting Spells (p. 26): In the Resistance Roll formula, the Ease Factor should be 6 + magnitude of spell + caster's Amazonian Chant score (replace the 3 with a 6).

Clipping the Sacrifice's Wings (p. 36): Change the level to 10, and the calculation to "(Base 10)".

Augustans (p. 47-74): All references to "Strong Parens" should be to "Skilled Parens".

The Story of Ludowicus (p. 48): In the middle of the third column on the page, the reference to Mt Etna should be to Mt Vesuvius.

Virgilian Animations (p. 69-73): Note that some of Virgil's Animations in the Virgilian Magic Landscape section p.69-73 break the (Ease Factor may not exceed Magic Might times two) limit: that is because they were designed by Virgil himself, and are magical devices fabled for their potency in Mythic Europe. Theoretically, extending the limit to three times Might would be a probably be a Minor Breakthrough, a limit of ten times Magic Might a Major Breakthrough, and bring one closer to Virgil's own power. The Augustan Brotherhood's magic is possibly a pale reflection of Virgil's magical skill.

Pentagram against Swords (p.60): Ease Factor should be 24, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"And snatched his gleaming sword from the sheath"(p.60): Ease Factor should be 27, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"Trojan walls, famous in war!" (p.60): Ease Factor should be 30, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"This effect was invested in Fortunata's Talisman, and takes advantage of a Talisman's closer connection to the maga who created it.

Fax, a Firebrand Spirit (p. 66): Delete the spurious wound penalties after "Powers:". The powers are described in the box on page 67.

Varina's Tomb (p. 79-80): The regio boundaries on the map are wrong. Follow the descriptions in the text instead.

Sense the Airy Trespass (p. 113): Replace the level with InVi 50, and the base level in the calculation with 5. The effect actually detects creatures with a Might of 31 or lower.

The text box on the top of page 117 is a copy of the box on page 112.

It should read:

[*]The laboratory should be challenging for characters to break into but not impossible. The storyguide should pay some attention to what would be exceedingly simple or annoyingly frustrating for the players and try to steer a course between them.

If the players have little patience or less powerful characters, then Ferox and Fidelius may be less active or there may be clues to the nature of the defenses in Amarantha's notes. If the party is especially powerful then the storyguide may choose to include more than two elemental spirits and the spirits may have significantly greater Might.

[*]Water is held outside of the laboratory complex by the circular ward on the outside ring of the complex. It should be apparent to most players, and characters, that disturbing the rings on the walls in the outer rooms could well flood the complex (at least the outer rooms).

[*]If Ferox and Fidelius are able to enter the laboratory of Hermanus proper (room 7), they realize that both the Butterfly's Gaze and the Tapestry of Confident Possession can be triggered by them at will. The spirits make use of these devices to trigger any justiciar that they think will help in their defense of the laboratory complex. The spirits are also aware of how to use the Helm of Unraveling and will impart this information to any non-magus who they believe has come under the influence of the Cross of Preempted Conflict.

The Empty Quarter (p. 109): "The Empty One" is "al-Khali", not "al-Khalil." Al-Khalil is a title of Abraham ("the Friend" (of God)).

Integrating Covenants (p. 123): The second box of the insert just repeats the text of the first. Replace its contents with the following text:

needed to manage a menagerie, but the players will still need to spend covenant build points on specialists (see Staffing later). Several of the other Residents choices include magical beasts as steeds (Magical Soldiers) or magical animals (Inhuman Residents). Prestige (Minor External Relations Boon) could be a consequence of a magical menagerie at covenant start-up, or a Boon that crops up once the menagerie is established. A covenant with Hermetic Services (Major External Relations Hook) could be bound to provide magical animals to other magi as familiars or vis sources, meaning that maintaining the menagerie is of primary importance. Mystical Allies (Major Surroundings Boon) could provide a source of livestock if the allies are magical animals. Harvesting the herd might, however, affect the ally relationship. A Chase (Minor Surroundings Boon) is a mundane breeding farm that could serve as a prototype for a magical stud farm, or if combined with another Boon or Hook that allows an aura in the chase, be the actual magical menagerie.

If you are detailing the wealth and poverty of your covenant, pages 56–71, you will need to specify the expenditure cost of the menagerie's animals and handlers. Regular staff cost the same number of expenditure points as Other Covenfolk on the Points of Inhabitants table (page 63), and the overseer specialists count as Specialists. To determine the inhabitants points of each animal, compare it to a horse (1 point). The typical covenant horse is Size +3. For each Size smaller than +3, double the number of animals that cost 1 point. Two Size +2 animals, four Size +1 animals, and eight Size 0 animals all cost 1 point. For larger animals, double the number of points for each Size increase. A Size +4 animal costs 2 points and a Size +5 animal costs 4 points. For carnivores, double the point cost. Keeping a pack of twelve wolves, for example, could cost 3 inhabitants points. A wolf is Size 0. Eight Size 0 herbivores cost 1 point, so four Size 0 carnivores cost 1 point. Four times three is twelve, costing 3 points.

A menagerie could also be used as a realia, a collection of magical examples of typically mundane things (creatures) used for study. Like books, whose author cannot study the book he writes, the collector cannot study the collection. To determine the Quality of the realia, count breeds instead of individual animals, so that a collection of 30 magical horses of 2 breeds counts as a tractatus of Quality 2. A menagerie realia usually provides study only in Magic Lore, however a collection of several different types of magical animals all connected to the same Form could allow study of that Form.

Apprentices


Child Virtues & Flaws (p. 11): Replace the first line with "Characters age 20 and younger".

New Flaws (p. 13): Frail should be a Minor Flaw, not a Major.

A Standard Apprenticeship (p. 16): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph, in the middle column, with "Added to 6 experience points gained from three seasons of Exposure, an apprentice gains 19 experience points a year for eleven years of the apprenticeship." Add a single sentence paragraph. "In the first year, the parens Opens the Arts, so the apprentice gains exposure experience in every season, for 8 experience points." In the next paragraph, replace the text from the third sentence onwards as follows: "Thus, each year the apprentice gains 40 experience points to spend on spells. As learning spells is a Laboratory Activity, the apprentice gains 2 experience points from exposure in every season, for a total of 8 over the year. At the end of the final three years, the apprentice has gained 120 spell levels and 24 experience points. The grand total of 15 years of apprenticeship using this model is 241 experience points and 120 spell levels." Delete the final paragraph.

Controlling Turbulences (p. 23): The Characteristic used for controlling Turbulences is Stamina. Replace "Intelligence" with "Stamina" in the first paragraph and the example in the middle of the second column.

"Boring Supernatural Abilities need not be maintained." Alternatively, replace "exciting" in the second sentence with "existing".

Sight of the Lazy Parens (p. 40): Delete "or if the spell is cast by someone for whom the spell is not specifically designed". Powerful spells cast by the target do not cause immediate Warping.

Life in the Laboratory (p. 54): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph in the final column on the page as follows: "If both parens and apprentice have Waster of Vis, for example, the laboratory activity costs twice the normal amount of vis."

Add the following paragraph on page 69, immediately after the description of Marie of Merinita.

Beatrice of Guernicus, (Presumed) Chief Quaesitor

A troubled woman, Beatrice is genuinely determined to do right, but with the crusade and all the deep hostility in the Tribunal, it is not clear any more what that is. Her pater was the previous Chief Quaesitor, Tibaut, and it is assumed that she will take over for him. She is young for Chief Quaesitor, since her predecessor died of old age just last year (as did his predecessor five years before, though he was even older than her pater), and would probably like to pass her authority to another member of her House if a better candidate appears. She is registered as part of the covenant of Castra Solis, but she has taken to spending all her time in the Arelat of late, possibly because of a falling out with the Primus of House Flambeau or the leaders of one of the Hermetic organizations based there.

Folk Witch Ceremony (p. 93): Cut this Virtue entirely.

Mythic Locations


Author Biographies (p.2): Add Mark Shirley's biography after Matt Ryan's. "Mark Shirley's job description changes every time he writes one of these biographies; but it's all the same really: research in diseases and wildlife conservation with the help of mathematical models. He has spent a lot of time on the Farne Islands; having conducted a puffin survey there he can confirm their magical ability to cause laughter. He's also visited the Majarida Mountains, but didn't see any wolves. He's never been to Purgatory... yet."

Houses of Hermes: Societates

Root-Cutter (p. 126): Root-Cutter is not an Ability, so there shouldn’t be any specialties listed. Those specialties could be included among the examples above for Mythic Herbalism, and one already is.

Realms of Power: Magic


Boar, Wild (p. 141) Replace Fatigue levels with OK, 0/0, 0/0, -2/-2, -4, Unconscious

Muto Vim Guidelines (p. 159): Replace the final paragraph with the following: "Muto Vim spells work by altering the magical energies that create the spell as it is being cast. The spell is the result of the combination of the base casting and the Muto Vim effect, and has its effect once both the casting and the Muto Vim effect have finished. This means that a Muto Vim spell must have a duration at least as long as the casting of the target spell, but need not last for as long as the spell itself. For normally-cast formulaic spells, a Momentary Duration is sufficient, but if the casting time is longer for any reason, the Muto Vim spell must also have a longer Duration; Sun is sufficient for any practical Ritual."

Sister Alice (p. 84): Reduce her Faith score to 3. In the final paragraph of her description, change "magic resistance of 60" to "Magic Resistance of 30".

Seeking the Unknown (p. 27): Replace the paragraph immediately after the Risk Modifier formula call-out with the following text: "Consult the Extraordinary Results Chart as normal to determine the effect on your spell. However, you may also add or subtract all or part of your Risk Modifier in order to get a Discovery in addition to the normal effect of experimentation. Thus, if you had a Risk Modifier of +3, and rolled an 8, you would get a Modified Effect. You could also subtract 1 to get a Discovery in addition. The effect of the spell is still modified. You cannot use the Risk Modifier to get a supplementary result other than a Discovery."

Exempli Gratia: Original Research (p. 30): In the third paragraph, delete the second half of the second sentence. (That is, delete "which he can reduce by 1 (his risk factor) to a 4 for 'no extraordinary effects'".)

The Transformed Folio (p. 102): Replace the spell description with the following:
The Transformed Folio
R: Touch, D: Year, T: Group, Level 45, Ritual
This changes all the pages of a book into those of a different book for the duration of the spell. You must touch both books when casting the spell, and because the spell is harnessed, you may end it at any time by concentrating. If the original book is damaged or altered, the contents of the duplicate will change to match it. Milvi occasionally use this spell to lend the same book to several different magi, or to communicate with each other over a long journey by linking a central book to a Redcap's travel journal. The spell also allows for vis boosting, so that you may copy a book using an Arcane Connection from wherever you happen to be.
(Base 1, +1 Touch, +4 Year, +2 Group, +5 intricacy; Boosted, Harnessed)

The Tireless Flight (p. 102): Change the calculation information as follows: (Base 10, +1 Touch, +1 Conc; Boosted, Harnessed, Tethered)

The Unfaithful Favor (p. 139): Change the level to 45, the Range to Touch, and the calculation to (Base 25, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 commands in addition to transport). (The base is taken from Magi of Hermes, p. 92.)

Voices From Hollow Spaces (p. 140): Change the level to 25, and the Base to 5 in the calculation.

A Window of Singular Direction (p. 141): This is not wrong as it stands, but can only affect dirt walls. Increasing the Base to 4, and the spell level to 15, creates a version that can affect stone walls, which fits the descriptive text better.

Realms of Power: The Divine


Abbas the Hunted (p. 16): Replace Susceptible to Infernal Power with Lesser Malediction. Nephilim are not allowed to have Hermetic Flaws.

Methods and Traditions (p. 46): Delete the clause beginning "to affect anyone but yourself..." from the final sentence of the paragraph on Meditation.

Powers and Effects guidelines (pp. 48-56): Wherever a guideline mentions (level - X) or (magnitude - X) for the power of an effect, replace with (level + X) or (magnitude + X). One of the more annoying possible typographical errors. This does not apply to the second, third, and fourth General guidelines for Blessing, which give bonuses capped at a maximum of +3 to either die rolls or aura tempering.

Give unto the Lord the glory... (p. 49): The Base should be 5, and the overall level 30.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil (p. 50): Replace the first sentence of the description with "This blessing bestows Magic Resistance from the Divine realm, equal to the effect's level."

Blessing Guidelines (p. 51): Replace "Give a character a bonus to aging roles equal to (the magnitude of the effect - 5)" with "Give a character a bonus to aging roles equal to the magnitude of the effect."

Cursing Guidelines (p. 61): Replace "Give a character a penalty on all die rolls equal to half (the magnitude of the effect - 3), rounded up." with "Give a character a penalty on all die rolls equal to half (the magnitude of the effect + 1), rounded up."

Transcendence Guidelines (p. 53): Level 4: Replace "(Purity)" with "(Meditation)".

Transcendence Guidelines (p. 53): Level 10: Replace "(Meditation)" with "(Purity)" for the effects to ignore wound and Fatigue penalties.

Holy Music (p. 93): Change "Choristers" to "Cantores".

Senior Clergy (p. 93): This should be listed in the Virtues section, after Holy Music. The listing in the insert is correct.

The Mysteries, Revised Edition


Chapter Four (p. 25): Should be "Chapter Four", not "Chapter Number".

Elements Form Opposed Pairs (p. 51): This paragraph should be an insert. The following paragraph is about seasonal enchantments.

Duplicate the Mechanism: Change the level of the spell to 25, and the Target to Ind. A woven piece of cloth is not a Group Target, so neither is an armillary sphere.

Craft the Mechanism (p. 52): Drop the level to 20, delete the (In) requisite from the spell description, and change the Target to Ind.

Degree of Mercury (p. 55): Last line, replace "Major Magical Focus" with "Minor Magical Focus". A Magical Focus in a House is Minor.

Divination Bonuses (p. 62): Delete "or Casual" from the introductory sentence.

Blending with Substance allows the magus to incorporate additional items into his talisman, as the Minor Virtue Great Talisman does for separate talismans. However, Inscription on the Soul does not allow the magus to attune new bonuses without working specifically on the talisman.

If a magus wishes to Initiate Consummate Talisman, then the magus can accept the required Ordeal.

Elder Runes Example (p. 128): Opening the wand for enchantment costs 2 pawns of Vim vis, not Terram. It takes one pawn of Rego vis, not Terram vis, to inscribe the Ice rune, and the enchantment costs 4 pawns of Terram vis (final level 40). Thus, it takes a total of seven pawns, so Hephaestion charges 14 pawns, plus the seven used in enchantment, for a grand total of 21 pawns.

Major Supernatural Virtue: Craft Magic (pp. 131-132): In the last example on page 131, replace "and he spends a Confidence Point to give him the final +3 increase" with "and he rolls a 3". On the first line of the main text on page 132, add "or Supernatural Ability roll total" after "Casting Total". Replace the last sentence of the example with "He must roll, and the total determines how strong the fear is.

Lords of Men

Advancement Requirements Table (p. 8): In the first line of explanatory text at the bottom, replace "Lord of the Manor" with "Landed Noble".

Assarting (p. 84): The insert entitled "Story Seed: Swift Assarting" was laid out over several paragraphs of text. They should read as follows:

Assarting

Hermetic scholars know that the weather in Mythic Europe is notably drier in the 13th Century than it was in preceding years. This has made farmable a great deal of land that was previously marginal. Coupled with the population boom being experienced in Europe, one of the simplest ways of expanding a fief is assarting: carving new cropland or meadow from fertile wasteland. This process has been occurring for much of the last century, so marginal land is becoming increasingly scarce.

A single strong laborer with proper tools clears one acre of lightly wooded land per month, if he does no other work. This means that villeins who are assarting land work much slower than an acre a month, because their other duties take precedence. Many lords use only local labor, or hire a small team of famuli who assist with the clearing and then are kept on to work the lord's increased demesne, so that assarting is a gradual but continual process that takes years to have a marked effect.

There are many ways of assarting land magically. Changing the topography or soil type to allow large field farming where it was previously impossible, altering water flows for irrigation, and removing trees or reducing them to ash are all simple and popular strategies.

A covenant that secretly clears itself land using magic alarms nearby lords. The sudden appearance of cropland in an area that was previously waste indicates to neighboring nobles that the new lord of has hired an enormous workforce. This, it is assumed, will cause predictable problems when it is dispersed.

Conquest

Taking land by conquest is rare, among the lower nobility, in most of feudal Europe, because it requires political skill and perfect timing. Conquered land must be taken from someone, and the lord of the dispossessed noble appears weak if he does nothing. In some cases, he will do as little as demand a fine and fealty from the invader, but this is seen as a pathetic response by his other vassals who, sensing their lack of security, form coalitions of mutual support that are often provoked into open war. All nobles know this, so unless a lord is beset by more important issues, conquest is rarely able to succeed in the extended term.

Seal the Breach (p. 116): Increase the level to 20. Add "Ritual minimum level 20" to the end of the calculation information.

Mounted Movement Rates (p. 127): The first three columns of numbers have the wrong headers. "Horse's Quickness" should be the heading for all the numerical columns. The leftmost column, currently headed "Horse's Quickness", should be headed "-3 or less", the second, currently headed "-3 or less", should be headed "-2 to -1", and the third, currently headed "-2 to 0" should be headed "0". The columns to the right of this are correct.

Effects of Mounted Movement (p. 127): The Walk/Amble or Trot and Gallop columns are misaligned. They should look like this:

GaitPenalty to Missile AttacksFalling DamageExtended Action Ease FactorDefensive Bonus (Optional)
Walk/Amble or Trot-1(Horse's Size +2)* + stress die6+1
Gallop-6(Horse's Size +6)* + stress die12+6



Example Maneuvers Table (p. 133): The entries in the "Disarm" line are out of order. They should be "Any Attack"; "Defense or Evasion"; "9".

Melee Weapons Table (p. 137): The Cudgel (under Great Weapons) should have 2 Damage levels.

Melee Weapon Table (p. 137): The availability for the Staff (under Great Weapons) should be "All", not "Early".

Missile Weapon Descriptions (p. 139): Add a new sub-heading "Melee Weapon Descriptions" immediately before the Falchion.

Melee Weapon Descriptions (p. 139): Replace the description of the Bastard Sword as follows: Sword, Bastard: A large, late-medieval sword suitable for one-handed or two-handed use. If used two-handed, treat it as a great sword. If used one handed, its Str and Load remain at +1 and 2, respectively, but all its other statistics are those of a long sword.

Armor Materials (p. 139-141): Add the following sentence to the end of the Plate armor paragraph: "The complex armor design rules do not cover 15th century full plate."

Rival Magic


Prolonged Apprenticeship (p. 19-20): Replace "eight years" with "15 years" on page 20.

Ranges and Durations List (p. 23): Replace "+5 levels" with "+1 magnitude".

Changing Range, Duration, and Target (p. 24): In the first paragraph replace each "add 5 to the level" with "add 1 to the magnitude".

Resisting Spells (p. 26): In the Resistance Roll formula, the Ease Factor should be 6 + magnitude of spell + caster's Amazonian Chant score (replace the 3 with a 6).

Magical Defenses (p. 31): Under Soma, replace the reference to "Shield of Magic" with a reference to "Magical Fortitude".

Rob Them of Goitosyros' Gift (p. 33): Change the level to 5, and reduce the Size modifier to +1 in the calculation.

The Hut Made Safe (p. 34): Change the level to 30, to match the calculation.

Clipping the Sacrifice's Wings (p. 36): Change the level to 10, and the calculation to "(Base 10)".

Augustans (p. 47-74): All references to "Strong Parens" should be to "Skilled Parens".

The Story of Ludowicus (p. 48): In the middle of the third column on the page, the reference to Mt Etna should be to Mt Vesuvius.

Virgilian Animations (p. 69-73): Note that some of Virgil's Animations in the Virgilian Magic Landscape section p.69-73 break the (Ease Factor may not exceed Magic Might times two) limit: that is because they were designed by Virgil himself, and are magical devices fabled for their potency in Mythic Europe. Theoretically, extending the limit to three times Might would be a probably be a Minor Breakthrough, a limit of ten times Magic Might a Major Breakthrough, and bring one closer to Virgil's own power. The Augustan Brotherhood's magic is possibly a pale reflection of Virgil's magical skill.

Pentagram against Swords (p.60): Ease Factor should be 24, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"And snatched his gleaming sword from the sheath"(p.60): Ease Factor should be 27, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"Trojan walls, famous in war!" (p.60): Ease Factor should be 30, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

Supernatural Abilities by Jotun Patron (p. 82): The content of this insert got mangled in development. Replace it with the following:

Aegir: Sjonhverfing, Storm's Eye, Threads of Fate, and Dowsing; plus EITHER Wildfire and Winter's Breath (from Gymir) OR Hex and Summon Animals (from Gullveig).

Gullveig: Entrancement, Hex, Summon Animals, and Magic Sensitivity; plus EITHER Valgaldrar and Spadomur (from Leiken) OR Shapeshifter and Winter's Breath (from Nidhogg & Fenrir).

Leikin: Hex, Spadomur, Valgaldrar, and Second Sight; plus EITHER Entrancement and Summon Animals (from Gullveig) OR Entrancement and Threads of Fate (from Urdur).

Nidhogg & Fenrir: Summon Animals, Shapeshifter, Winter's Breath, and Animal Ken; plus EITHER Storm's Eye and Wildfire (from Gymir) OR Sjonhverfing and Wildfire (from Surtur).

Surtur: Shapeshifter, Sjonhverfing, Wildfire, and Lesser Craft Magic; plus EITHER Storm's Eye and Winter's Breath (from Gymir) OR Summon Animals and Winter's Breath (from Nidhogg & Fenrir).

Urdur: Entrancement, Spadomur, Threads of Fate, and Premonitions; plus EITHER Hex and Summon Animals (from Gullveig) OR Sjonverfing and Storm's Eye (from Aegir).

Voluspa (p. 98): The formula line should read "(Base 9, +18 Lifetime, +6 lengthy explanation)", and the final Ease Factor should be 33.

Storm's Eye Utiseta Effects (p. 99): Both effects should have "+6 Sight", not "+9 Sight". The Ease Factor for Theft of Thor's Thunder should be 21, and that for Beating of Hraesvelg's Wings should be 30.

Calamitous Fortune (p. 102): Change the first sentence to read "The caster curses the target with Fortune's Warp."

Soqotran Giant Gecko (p. 117): Delete the first "Gecko Skin" power. The second is a replacement description, and the first was accidentally not deleted.

Control Wind (p. 132): Change the level to 30 and the calculation to Olibanum Magic 30 (Base 21, +9 Sight, +3 Censer) / CrAu 50 (Base 35, +15 Sight, +5 Censer).

The Sundered Eagle


An Enemy Within (p. 140): At the top of the third column, replace "Moreto has informed..." with "Other Infernalists have informed...".

Infernal Tradition: Stringla (p. 141): Add Phantasm to the list of Favored Abilities.

Legends of Hermes


Hermanus of Tremere (p. 10): In the first paragraph of text, replace the description of the Vexillation of the Adamant Rook as "a company of magical troops" with "a group of enchanters".

Maintain the Caster's Spell (p. 65): Add the following sentence at the end of the description. "This effect was invested in Fortunata's Talisman, and takes advantage of a Talisman's closer connection to the maga who created it. It cannot be used by any other magus, although laboratory investigation does reveal its existence and nature."

Fax, a Firebrand Spirit (p. 66): Delete the spurious wound penalties after "Powers:". The powers are described in the box on page 67.

Varina's Tomb (p. 79-80): The regio boundaries on the map are wrong. Follow the descriptions in the text instead.

Sense the Airy Trespass (p. 113): Replace the level with InVi 50, and the base level in the calculation with 5. The effect actually detects creatures with a Might of 31 or lower.

The text box on the top of page 117 is a copy of the box on page 112.

It should read:

[*]The laboratory should be challenging for characters to break into but not impossible. The storyguide should pay some attention to what would be exceedingly simple or annoyingly frustrating for the players and try to steer a course between them.

If the players have little patience or less powerful characters, then Ferox and Fidelius may be less active or there may be clues to the nature of the defenses in Amarantha's notes. If the party is especially powerful then the storyguide may choose to include more than two elemental spirits and the spirits may have significantly greater Might.

[*]Water is held outside of the laboratory complex by the circular ward on the outside ring of the complex. It should be apparent to most players, and characters, that disturbing the rings on the walls in the outer rooms could well flood the complex (at least the outer rooms).

[*]If Ferox and Fidelius are able to enter the laboratory of Hermanus proper (room 7), they realize that both the Butterfly's Gaze and the Tapestry of Confident Possession can be triggered by them at will. The spirits make use of these devices to trigger any justiciar that they think will help in their defense of the laboratory complex. The spirits are also aware of how to use the Helm of Unraveling and will impart this information to any non-magus who they believe has come under the influence of the Cross of Preempted Conflict.

The Cradle and the Crescent

Mobed Initiations (p. 100): Add the following sentences at the beginning of the first paragraph. "The following Initiations are mainly used by Gifted mobeds, and Initiate the version of the Virtue associated with the Magic realm. Similar Initiations exist for mobeds with True Faith, to Initiate the Divine versions of the Virtues."

The Empty Quarter (p. 109): "The Empty One" is "al-Khali", not "al-Khalil." Al-Khalil is a title of Abraham ("the Friend" (of God)).

Ighraq al-Siq (p. 130): Add "(Aquam)" after "Magic Might: 40".

Sample Muslim Isms (p. 186): Replace "Sample Muslim Isms" with "Sample Arabic Isms".

Sense the Hearts of Fire (p. 25): Change the Duration to Concentration, and increase the Base level to 5. Edit the end of the first sentence to read "Ignem Form Might (of any supernatural Realm).

Integrating Covenants (p. 123): The second box of the insert just repeats the text of the first. Replace its contents with the following text:

needed to manage a menagerie, but the players will still need to spend covenant build points on specialists (see Staffing later). Several of the other Residents choices include magical beasts as steeds (Magical Soldiers) or magical animals (Inhuman Residents). Prestige (Minor External Relations Boon) could be a consequence of a magical menagerie at covenant start-up, or a Boon that crops up once the menagerie is established. A covenant with Hermetic Services (Major External Relations Hook) could be bound to provide magical animals to other magi as familiars or vis sources, meaning that maintaining the menagerie is of primary importance. Mystical Allies (Major Surroundings Boon) could provide a source of livestock if the allies are magical animals. Harvesting the herd might, however, affect the ally relationship. A Chase (Minor Surroundings Boon) is a mundane breeding farm that could serve as a prototype for a magical stud farm, or if combined with another Boon or Hook that allows an aura in the chase, be the actual magical menagerie.

If you are detailing the wealth and poverty of your covenant, pages 56–71, you will need to specify the expenditure cost of the menagerie's animals and handlers. Regular staff cost the same number of expenditure points as Other Covenfolk on the Points of Inhabitants table (page 63), and the overseer specialists count as Specialists. To determine the inhabitants points of each animal, compare it to a horse (1 point). The typical covenant horse is Size +3. For each Size smaller than +3, double the number of animals that cost 1 point. Two Size +2 animals, four Size +1 animals, and eight Size 0 animals all cost 1 point. For larger animals, double the number of points for each Size increase. A Size +4 animal costs 2 points and a Size +5 animal costs 4 points. For carnivores, double the point cost. Keeping a pack of twelve wolves, for example, could cost 3 inhabitants points. A wolf is Size 0. Eight Size 0 herbivores cost 1 point, so four Size 0 carnivores cost 1 point. Four times three is twelve, costing 3 points.

A menagerie could also be used as a realia, a collection of magical examples of typically mundane things (creatures) used for study. Like books, whose author cannot study the book he writes, the collector cannot study the collection. To determine the Quality of the realia, count breeds instead of individual animals, so that a collection of 30 magical horses of 2 breeds counts as a tractatus of Quality 2. A menagerie realia usually provides study only in Magic Lore, however a collection of several different types of magical animals all connected to the same Form could allow study of that Form.

Apprentices


Child Virtues & Flaws (p. 11): Replace the first line with "Characters age 20 and younger".

New Flaws (p. 13): Frail should be a Minor Flaw, not a Major.

A Standard Apprenticeship (p. 16): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph, in the middle column, with "Added to 6 experience points gained from three seasons of Exposure, an apprentice gains 19 experience points a year for eleven years of the apprenticeship." Add a single sentence paragraph. "In the first year, the parens Opens the Arts, so the apprentice gains exposure experience in every season, for 8 experience points." In the next paragraph, replace the text from the third sentence onwards as follows: "Thus, each year the apprentice gains 40 experience points to spend on spells. As learning spells is a Laboratory Activity, the apprentice gains 2 experience points from exposure in every season, for a total of 8 over the year. At the end of the final three years, the apprentice has gained 120 spell levels and 24 experience points. The grand total of 15 years of apprenticeship using this model is 241 experience points and 120 spell levels." Delete the final paragraph.

Controlling Turbulences (p. 23): The Characteristic used for controlling Turbulences is Stamina. Replace "Intelligence" with "Stamina" in the first paragraph and the example in the middle of the second column.

Opening Arts with Supernatural Abilities (p. 35): In the third column, add the following sentence after the second sentence of the paragraph ("...must double the necessary level."). "Boring Supernatural Abilities need not be maintained." Alternatively, replace "exciting" in the second sentence with "existing".

Sight of the Lazy Parens (p. 40): Delete "or if the spell is cast by someone for whom the spell is not specifically designed". Powerful spells cast by the target do not cause immediate Warping.

Life in the Laboratory (p. 54): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph in the final column on the page as follows: "If both parens and apprentice have Waster of Vis, for example, the laboratory activity costs twice the normal amount of vis."

Grogs


The Craftsman, Suggested Virtues and Flaws (p. 107): Delete "Animal Companion" from both Apprentice and Journeyman Virtues and Flaws. Replace it with "Carefree".

Apprentice Virtues and Flaws (p. 107): Independent Craftsman should have two asterisks, as it does under Journeyman Virtues and Flaws.

Against the Dark: The Transylvanian Tribunal

Gyogy-to (p. 8): Add the following sentence to the end of the section. "This lake is next to Heviz (see page 36)."

Karvuna (p. 8): Change the section heading to "Sunken City".

The Bran Pass (p. 85): Change the first sentence so that it starts: "Running through the Southern Carpathians from Campulung to Kronstadt,".

Tales of Power


Map (p. 92): In the inset map, note that north is to the right, and that the map is not to scale (the islands are shown larger than they are).

Transforming Mythic Europe

Beatrice of Guernicus, (Presumed) Chief Quaesitor

A troubled woman, Beatrice is genuinely determined to do right, but with the crusade and all the deep hostility in the Tribunal, it is not clear any more what that is. Her pater was the previous Chief Quaesitor, Tibaut, and it is assumed that she will take over for him. She is young for Chief Quaesitor, since her predecessor died of old age just last year (as did his predecessor five years before, though he was even older than her pater), and would probably like to pass her authority to another member of her House if a better candidate appears. She is registered as part of the covenant of Castra Solis, but she has taken to spending all her time in the Arelat of late, possibly because of a falling out with the Primus of House Flambeau or the leaders of one of the Hermetic organizations based there.

Folk Witch Ceremony (p. 93): Cut this Virtue entirely.

Mythic Locations


Author Biographies (p.2): Add Mark Shirley's biography after Matt Ryan's. "Mark Shirley's job description changes every time he writes one of these biographies; but it's all the same really: research in diseases and wildlife conservation with the help of mathematical models. He has spent a lot of time on the Farne Islands; having conducted a puffin survey there he can confirm their magical ability to cause laughter. He's also visited the Majarida Mountains, but didn't see any wolves. He's never been to Purgatory... yet."

This means that a Muto Vim spell must have a duration at least as long as the casting of the target spell, but need not last for as long as the spell itself.

Reveal the Lingering Spirit (p. 14): The Base should be 5, and the final level 30.

Seeking the Unknown (p. 27): Replace the paragraph immediately after the Risk Modifier formula call-out with the following text: "Consult the Extraordinary Results Chart as normal to determine the effect on your spell. However, you may also add or subtract all or part of your Risk Modifier in order to get a Discovery in addition to the normal effect of experimentation. Thus, if you had a Risk Modifier of +3, and rolled an 8, you would get a Modified Effect. You could also subtract 1 to get a Discovery in addition. The effect of the spell is still modified. You cannot use the Risk Modifier to get a supplementary result other than a Discovery."

Exempli Gratia: Original Research (p. 30): In the third paragraph, delete the second half of the second sentence. (That is, delete "which he can reduce by 1 (his risk factor) to a 4 for 'no extraordinary effects'".)

Scrying (p. 52): Replace "Criamon" with "Verditius" in the first paragraph.

Odor of Lingering Magic (p. 75): Replace the level calculation with "(Base 15, +1 Conc, +2 Smell)".

The Transformed Folio (p. 102): Replace the spell description with the following:
The Transformed Folio
R: Touch, D: Year, T: Group, Level 45, Ritual
This changes all the pages of a book into those of a different book for the duration of the spell. You must touch both books when casting the spell, and because the spell is harnessed, you may end it at any time by concentrating. If the original book is damaged or altered, the contents of the duplicate will change to match it. Milvi occasionally use this spell to lend the same book to several different magi, or to communicate with each other over a long journey by linking a central book to a Redcap's travel journal. The spell also allows for vis boosting, so that you may copy a book using an Arcane Connection from wherever you happen to be.
(Base 1, +1 Touch, +4 Year, +2 Group, +5 intricacy; Boosted, Harnessed)

The Tireless Flight (p. 102): Change the calculation information as follows: (Base 10, +1 Touch, +1 Conc; Boosted, Harnessed, Tethered)

Venomous Velites (p. 139): Change the level to 45, and in the calculation change +1 Group to +2 Group.

The Unfaithful Favor (p. 139): Change the level to 45, the Range to Touch, and the calculation to (Base 25, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 commands in addition to transport). (The base is taken from Magi of Hermes, p. 92.)

Voices From Hollow Spaces (p. 140): Change the level to 25, and the Base to 5 in the calculation.

A Window of Singular Direction (p. 141): This is not wrong as it stands, but can only affect dirt walls. Increasing the Base to 4, and the spell level to 15, creates a version that can affect stone walls, which fits the descriptive text better.

Realms of Power: The Divine


Abbas the Hunted (p. 16): Replace Susceptible to Infernal Power with Lesser Malediction. Nephilim are not allowed to have Hermetic Flaws.

Methods and Traditions (p. 46): Delete the clause beginning "to affect anyone but yourself..." from the final sentence of the paragraph on Meditation.

Powers and Effects guidelines (pp. 48-56): Wherever a guideline mentions (level - X) or (magnitude - X) for the power of an effect, replace with (level + X) or (magnitude + X). One of the more annoying possible typographical errors. This does not apply to the second, third, and fourth General guidelines for Blessing, which give bonuses capped at a maximum of +3 to either die rolls or aura tempering.

Give unto the Lord the glory... (p. 49): The Base should be 5, and the overall level 30.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil (p. 50): Replace the first sentence of the description with "This blessing bestows Magic Resistance from the Divine realm, equal to the effect's level."

Blessing Guidelines (p. 51): Replace "Give a character a bonus to aging roles equal to (the magnitude of the effect - 5)" with "Give a character a bonus to aging roles equal to the magnitude of the effect."

Cursing Guidelines (p. 61): Replace "Give a character a penalty on all die rolls equal to half (the magnitude of the effect - 3), rounded up." with "Give a character a penalty on all die rolls equal to half (the magnitude of the effect + 1), rounded up."

Transcendence Guidelines (p. 53): Level 10: Replace "(Meditation)" with "(Purity)" for the effects to ignore wound and Fatigue penalties.

Transcendence Guidelines (p. 53): Level 30: Replace "(Meditation)" with "(Purity)" for the effect to permanently restore a mind.

Holy Music (p. 93): Change "Choristers" to "Cantores".

Senior Clergy (p. 93): This should be listed in the Virtues section, after Holy Music. The listing in the insert is correct.

Holy Tradition: The Cantores (p. 93): In the list of Favored Abilities, delete "Sense Holiness and Unholiness". Add "Enchanting Music" after "Blessing".

Guide to the Perplexed (p. 133): Change the statistic to "Summa, Theology: Judaism (Level 6, Quality 9); Summa, Philosophiae (Level 3, Quality 9).

Realms of Power: The Divine, Revised Edition

Divine Unity Example (p. 66): The Brave Personality Trait is not added to the Tempering total, so the total is 10, and he invokes a Brave Temper of +1.

Dream Interpretation (p. 137): In the second paragraph, replace the second sentence with "The first is a form of Meditation, as per the Holy Method, used in combination with Holy Powers."

The Mysteries, Revised Edition


Chapter Four (p. 25): Should be "Chapter Four", not "Chapter Number".

Elements Form Opposed Pairs (p. 51): This paragraph should be an insert. The following paragraph is about seasonal enchantments.

Duplicate the Mechanism: Change the level of the spell to 25, and the Target to Ind. A woven piece of cloth is not a Group Target, so neither is an armillary sphere.

Craft the Mechanism (p. 52): Drop the level to 20, delete the (In) requisite from the spell description, and change the Target to Ind.

Degree of Mercury (p. 55): Last line, replace "Major Magical Focus" with "Minor Magical Focus". A Magical Focus in a House is Minor.

Divination Bonuses (p. 62): Delete "or Casual" from the introductory sentence.

Ceremonial Bonus (p. 62): Add "see the Ceremonial Augury Phenomena table on page 61." to the final sentence.

Note that the caster... (p. 62): Should be part of the preceding paragraph, not a separate bullet point.

Empowering Prison of the Declining Spirit (p. 66): In the second column, first full paragraph, it should read "the current Might Score of the bound spirit must equal or exceed half the level of the Ritual effect to be powered".

The Great or Consummate Talisman (p. 70): Replace the contents of the insert with the following text:

Blending with Substance allows the magus to incorporate additional items into his talisman, as the Minor Virtue Great Talisman does for separate talismans. However, Inscription on the Soul does not allow the magus to attune new bonuses without working specifically on the talisman.

If a magus wishes to Initiate Consummate Talisman, then the magus can accept the required Ordeal.

Invocation Magic and Names of Power (p. 77): Add the following to the final paragraph: "although the combined bonus is still limited by Magic Theory."

Consummate Talisman and Names of Power (p. 78): Add the following to the final paragraph: "although the combined bonus is still limited by Magic Theory."

The Structure of the Philosophers of Rome (p. 124): In the second paragraph, replace "True Naming" with "Hermetic Synthemata", and "Hermetic Evocation" with "Spell Binding".

Example Initiation Script for Disciples (p. 130): In the second paragraph, replace "Hermetic Evocation" with "Spell Binding".

Page (p. 132): Replace the final sentence with "The third Virtue taught is Puissant Art of Memory, and Initiates are also taught that Ability."

Knight (p. 132): Replace "Hermetic True Names" with "Hermetic Synthemata".

Immortal Beings and Permanent Change (p. 133): Add the following sentence after the first sentence of the second paragraph: "A maga who becomes immortal in one of these ways is no longer limited by her highest Technique and Form in the number of spaces she can open in her talisman; rather, she can open as many as she spends time and vis for."

Autocephalous (p. 20): Delete the final sentence. There is no Isolated Boon.

Mundane Lord (p. 26): Under Hooks, change "Rights" to "Rights and Customs".

Summertime (p. 26): Drop "Criminals" from the Free Choices, as it is actually a Minor Boon.

Boons, Hooks, and Governance Styles Insert (p. 31): This did not get laid out as a table. The lower part of the insert should look like this:

GovernanceBoonsFreeHooks
AnarchyUngoverned-Divided Loyalty, Fractured Council
Autocracy-Autocracy, GerontocracySuperiors, Vis Salary
BureaucracyLiterate Convenfolk
Guild, Center of Excellence
DemocracyVis GrantDemocracyFractured Council, Suffrage

Farming Peasant (p. 45): In Abilities, delete Climb (no such Ability), rename Craft: Farmer to Profession: Farmer, and increase Folk Ken to 3.

Minstrel (p. 46): The wound ranges given are wrong, as he has Size -1. Change them to -1 (1-4), -3 (5-8), -5 (9-12), Incapacitated (13+)

Replace the first sentence with the following: "This spell fills a large chest or other sturdy container with silver pennies equal to about 650 Mythic Pounds.". In the description, replace "it would take 100 years" with "it would take more than 30 years". Finally, replace the level calculation with "(Base 15, +1 Touch, +2 Group, +1 complexity)".

Summary of Quality Rules (Insert) (p. 88): Delete '+3 for non-magical subjects' from both the summa and tractatus extended formulae. Delete the whole final paragraph about that bonus. In the extended Maximum Tractatus Quality formula, add '+3' after 'Author's Communication'.

Summary of Quality Rules (p. 88): Under Extended Rules, in the third paragraph (beginning "The quality bonus"), delete "2 x". The total quality may not exceed twice that value; the bonus may not exceed the value.

Florilegia (p. 90): Replace the first sentence with "Florilegia (singular florilegium) are anthologies on a topic created by binding together tractatus on a single topic."

Glosses (p. 91): Add the following sentence at the end of the entry: "As with florilegia, glosses express resonance, and cannot be combined with resonant materials or clarification."

The First Furrow Guides the Second (p. 97): Replace the final clause of the penultimate sentence with "allowing an unskilled magus to avoid the three extra botch dice for scribing without Profession: Scribe".

Binding the Hermetic Codex (p. 97): In the first sentence of the description, change "ritual" to "spell". In the level calculation add "+3 complexity."

Books That Scream in Pain (p. 100): Replace T: Ind with T: Room. The level calculation is correct.

The Weightless Transportation of Books (p. 100): Change the level to 30, and the Base level to 5.

Realia (p. 102): A realia collection with a quality of 6 requires 32 objects, not 64.

Ring and Circle Ward Examples (p. 104): Change the level of Ward Against the Curious Scullion to 30, and replace the calculation with (Base 15, +1 Touch, +2 Ring). Change the level of Ward Against Mundane Intrusions to 50, make it a Ritual, and change the level calculation to read "(As Ward Against the Curious Scullion, +4 requisites)".

Laboratory & Sanctum (p. 105): The key should read 22: Ingredients, 23: Refuse Tip.

Non-Standard Laboratory Routines (p. 108): An illustration occludes a small section of text on page 108. The relevant portion of the first paragraph reads:

"If a magus decides to work non-standard hours, choose one (or more) of the following routines each season. He may combine multiple routines..."

and the relevant portion of the second paragraph reads:

"A maga may also choose to work fewer than the standard ten hours per day. There are no special routines for this - for each hour fewer, she simply loses 10% of her Lab Total or Advancement Total for the season."

Ice Cavern (p. 118): Replace the possible Terram Specialization with Aquam.

Minor Supernatural Flaws (p. 119): The first "Minor Supernatural Flaws" heading, in the left column, should read "Free Supernatural Flaws".

The Ambulatory Laboratory (p. 122): Increase the base level to 25, and the spell level to 50. The guidelines for this effect were defined in Magi of Hermes, p. 92.

Size Examples (p. 39): Change the sentence about birds to read "Birds are two Size points bigger than their weight would suggest, accounting for their larger overall dimension; if you need to know the weight of a bird, subtract two from the Size before calculation."

Transforming the Mind (p. 93): Delete "though she can still master the spells she has learned" from the penultimate sentence.

Elder Runes Example (p. 128): Opening the wand for enchantment costs 2 pawns of Vim vis, not Terram. It takes one pawn of Rego vis, not Terram vis, to inscribe the Ice rune, and the enchantment costs 4 pawns of Terram vis (final level 40). Thus, it takes a total of seven pawns, so Hephaestion charges 14 pawns, plus the seven used in enchantment, for a grand total of 21 pawns.

Automaton Example (p. 132): Towards the bottom of the first column, replace "Eleven pawns of Terram vis are needed to open the magpie for enchantment." with "Eleven pawns of Vim vis are needed to open the magpie for enchantment.".

Expanded Form and Material Bonuses (p. 137): Change the title to "Expanded Shape and Material Bonuses".

Expanded Form and Material Bonuses (p. 137): Delete "Hickory" under "Trees". Hickory is not a European tree.

Incantation/Effusion Guidelines (p. 108): Delete "Control a substance in a very unnatural fashion" from the level 10 guidelines. It appears (correctly) at level 4.

Releganta of Flambeau (p. 125): In Arts, change Pe 6 (+2) to Pe 6 (+3) and Me 6 (+2) to Me 6 (+3).

City and Guild


Money and Investment (p. 40): Replace the first paragraph of the third column with "This means that 9 Labour Points are worth:"

Guild Apprentices (p. 44): In the final paragraph, about training, replace the sentence "An apprentice thus finishes his apprenticeship with a score of 5 in his Craft Ability." with "The Practice and Training apply to the apprentice's Craft Ability, so that he finishes with a score of 5 (and 9 extra experience points)."

Wondrous Items (p. 70): Delete "for every two points he has in his Leadership score" from the sentence saying how many helpers the craftsman may have.

Wondrous Items (p. 71): Delete "since wondrous items can only affect themselves or the bearer of the item" at the top of the final column of main text.

Shoes of the Zephyr (p. 72): Change the Craft Level to 19, the Magnitude to 7, and delete the +1 size requirement.

The Key of Theodorus (p. 78): Change the level to 5, and the analysis to (Base 1, +1 Touch, +1 Part, +2 for metal).

The first two entries are the wrong way round. Change them to read as follows:

is marrying a groom from a wealthier family.

is not a virgin.

Ancient Magic


The Ob of Mot (p. 32): The calculation should say +2 Group; the final level is still correct.

Links of Stone (p. 36): The level should be 20, and the calculation should say "Base 4, +4 Arc".

Potion of Creation (p. 56): Increase level to 30, Range to Touch, and note "+1 Touch" in the calculation parenthesis.

Mechanica Creation Level (p. 77): Replace the formula with "Mechanica Creation Level: (3 x Magnitude of Imbued Effect) + modifiers"

Fire Quencher (p. 81): The creation level should be 9.

Aeolipile (p. 81): The creation level should be 21.

Thunder Maker (p. 81): The creation level should be 12

Stellar Magic by Spell Casting (p. 91): Delete the final sentence ("The following spell is only...") from the first paragraph. The spell is not a Mystery spell.

A Comparison of the Positions of the Fixed Stars (p. 91): Drop the range to Touch and the level to 15. There is no need for Sight Range. In the penultimate sentence, replace "500 paces" with "1000 paces".

Crafting Items Using Rego Magic (p. 61): Change the introductory text to say "at Personal Range" rather than "at Touch Range".

States of Consciousness (p. 67): The last bullet point should be headed "Unconcious".

Beast Masters (p. 108): Delete Feral Upbringing from the list of required Flaws, and the half sentence "but additionally have the flaw of Feral Upbringing".

Root-Cutter (p. 126): Root-Cutter is not an Ability, so there shouldn’t be any specialties listed. Those specialties could be included among the examples above for Mythic Herbalism, and one already is.

Major Supernatural Virtue: Craft Magic (pp. 131-132): In the last example on page 131, replace "and he spends a Confidence Point to give him the final +3 increase" with "and he rolls a 3".

Assarting (p. 84): The insert entitled "Story Seed: Swift Assarting" was laid out over several paragraphs of text. They should read as follows:

Assarting

Hermetic scholars know that the weather in Mythic Europe is notably drier in the 13th Century than it was in preceding years. This has made farmable a great deal of land that was previously marginal. Coupled with the population boom being experienced in Europe, one of the simplest ways of expanding a fief is assarting: carving new cropland or meadow from fertile wasteland. This process has been occurring for much of the last century, so marginal land is becoming increasingly scarce.

A single strong laborer with proper tools clears one acre of lightly wooded land per month, if he does no other work. This means that villeins who are assarting land work much slower than an acre a month, because their other duties take precedence. Many lords use only local labor, or hire a small team of famuli who assist with the clearing and then are kept on to work the lord's increased demesne, so that assarting is a gradual but continual process that takes years to have a marked effect.

There are many ways of assarting land magically. Changing the topography or soil type to allow large field farming where it was previously impossible, altering water flows for irrigation, and removing trees or reducing them to ash are all simple and popular strategies.

A covenant that secretly clears itself land using magic alarms nearby lords. The sudden appearance of cropland in an area that was previously waste indicates to neighboring nobles that the new lord of has hired an enormous workforce. This, it is assumed, will cause predictable problems when it is dispersed.

Conquest

Taking land by conquest is rare, among the lower nobility, in most of feudal Europe, because it requires political skill and perfect timing. Conquered land must be taken from someone, and the lord of the dispossessed noble appears weak if he does nothing. In some cases, he will do as little as demand a fine and fealty from the invader, but this is seen as a pathetic response by his other vassals who, sensing their lack of security, form coalitions of mutual support that are often provoked into open war. All nobles know this, so unless a lord is beset by more important issues, conquest is rarely able to succeed in the extended term.

Seal the Breach (p. 116): Increase the level to 20. Add "Ritual minimum level 20" to the end of the calculation information.

Mounted Movement Rates (p. 127): The first three columns of numbers have the wrong headers. "Horse's Quickness" should be the heading for all the numerical columns. The leftmost column, currently headed "Horse's Quickness", should be headed "-3 or less", the second, currently headed "-3 or less", should be headed "-2 to -1", and the third, currently headed "-2 to 0" should be headed "0". The columns to the right of this are correct.

Effects of Mounted Movement (p. 127): The Walk/Amble or Trot and Gallop columns are misaligned. They should look like this:

GaitPenalty to Missile AttacksFalling DamageExtended Action Ease FactorDefensive Bonus (Optional)
Walk/Amble or Trot-1(Horse's Size +2)* + stress die6+1
Gallop-6(Horse's Size +6)* + stress die12+6

If used two-handed, treat it as a great sword. If used one handed, its Str and Load remain at +1 and 2, respectively, but all its other statistics are those of a long sword.

Armor Materials (p. 139-141): Add the following sentence to the end of the Plate armor paragraph: "The complex armor design rules do not cover 15th century full plate."

The Story of Ludowicus (p. 48): In the middle of the third column on the page, the reference to Mt Etna should be to Mt Vesuvius.

Virgilian Animations (p. 69-73): Note that some of Virgil's Animations in the Virgilian Magic Landscape section p.69-73 break the (Ease Factor may not exceed Magic Might times two) limit: that is because they were designed by Virgil himself, and are magical devices fabled for their potency in Mythic Europe. Theoretically, extending the limit to three times Might would be a probably be a Minor Breakthrough, a limit of ten times Magic Might a Major Breakthrough, and bring one closer to Virgil's own power. The Augustan Brotherhood's magic is possibly a pale reflection of Virgil's magical skill.

Pentagram against Swords (p.60): Ease Factor should be 24, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"And snatched his gleaming sword from the sheath"(p.60): Ease Factor should be 27, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

"Trojan walls, famous in war!" (p.60): Ease Factor should be 30, as the Base is 12 not 15 as given.

Surtur: Shapeshifter, Sjonhverfing, Wildfire, and Lesser Craft Magic; plus EITHER Storm's Eye and Winter's Breath (from Gymir) OR Summon Animals and Winter's Breath (from Nidhogg & Fenrir).

Urdur: Entrancement, Spadomur, Threads of Fate, and Premonitions; plus EITHER Hex and Summon Animals (from Gullveig) OR Sjonverfing and Storm's Eye (from Aegir).

Voluspa (p. 98): The formula line should read "(Base 9, +18 Lifetime, +6 lengthy explanation)", and the final Ease Factor should be 33.

Storm's Eye Utiseta Effects (p. 99): Both effects should have "+6 Sight", not "+9 Sight". The Ease Factor for Theft of Thor's Thunder should be 21, and that for Beating of Hraesvelg's Wings should be 30.

Calamitous Fortune (p. 102): Change the first sentence to read "The caster curses the target with Fortune's Warp."

Soqotran Giant Gecko (p. 117): Delete the first "Gecko Skin" power. The second is a replacement description, and the first was accidentally not deleted.

Control Wind (p. 132): Change the level to 30 and the calculation to Olibanum Magic 30 (Base 21, +9 Sight, +3 Censer) / CrAu 50 (Base 35, +15 Sight, +5 Censer).

The Sundered Eagle


An Enemy Within (p. 140): At the top of the third column, replace "Moreto has informed..." with "Other Infernalists have informed...".

Infernal Tradition: Stringla (p. 141): Add Phantasm to the list of Favored Abilities.

Legends of Hermes


Hermanus of Tremere (p. 10): In the first paragraph of text, replace the description of the Vexillation of the Adamant Rook as "a company of magical troops" with "a group of enchanters".

Maintain the Caster's Spell (p. 65): Add the following sentence at the end of the description. "This effect was invested in Fortunata's Talisman, and takes advantage of a Talisman's closer connection to the maga who created it. It cannot be used by any other magus, although laboratory investigation does reveal its existence and nature."

Fax, a Firebrand Spirit (p. 66): Delete the spurious wound penalties after "Powers:". The powers are described in the box on page 67.

Varina's Tomb (p. 79-80): The regio boundaries on the map are wrong. Follow the descriptions in the text instead.

Sense the Airy Trespass (p. 113): Replace the level with InVi 50, and the base level in the calculation with 5. The effect actually detects creatures with a Might of 31 or lower.

The text box on the top of page 117 is a copy of the box on page 112.

It should read:

[*]The laboratory should be challenging for characters to break into but not impossible. The storyguide should pay some attention to what would be exceedingly simple or annoyingly frustrating for the players and try to steer a course between them.

If the players have little patience or less powerful characters, then Ferox and Fidelius may be less active or there may be clues to the nature of the defenses in Amarantha's notes. If the party is especially powerful then the storyguide may choose to include more than two elemental spirits and the spirits may have significantly greater Might.

[*]Water is held outside of the laboratory complex by the circular ward on the outside ring of the complex. It should be apparent to most players, and characters, that disturbing the rings on the walls in the outer rooms could well flood the complex (at least the outer rooms).

[*]If Ferox and Fidelius are able to enter the laboratory of Hermanus proper (room 7), they realize that both the Butterfly's Gaze and the Tapestry of Confident Possession can be triggered by them at will. The spirits make use of these devices to trigger any justiciar that they think will help in their defense of the laboratory complex. The spirits are also aware of how to use the Helm of Unraveling and will impart this information to any non-magus who they believe has come under the influence of the Cross of Preempted Conflict.

The Cradle and the Crescent

Mobed Initiations (p. 100): Add the following sentences at the beginning of the first paragraph. "The following Initiations are mainly used by Gifted mobeds, and Initiate the version of the Virtue associated with the Magic realm. Similar Initiations exist for mobeds with True Faith, to Initiate the Divine versions of the Virtues."

The Empty Quarter (p. 109): "The Empty One" is "al-Khali", not "al-Khalil." Al-Khalil is a title of Abraham ("the Friend" (of God)).

Ighraq al-Siq (p. 130): Add "(Aquam)" after "Magic Might: 40".

Sample Muslim Isms (p. 186): Replace "Sample Muslim Isms" with "Sample Arabic Isms".

Integrating Covenants (p. 123): The second box of the insert just repeats the text of the first. Replace its contents with the following text:

needed to manage a menagerie, but the players will still need to spend covenant build points on specialists (see Staffing later). Several of the other Residents choices include magical beasts as steeds (Magical Soldiers) or magical animals (Inhuman Residents). Prestige (Minor External Relations Boon) could be a consequence of a magical menagerie at covenant start-up, or a Boon that crops up once the menagerie is established. A covenant with Hermetic Services (Major External Relations Hook) could be bound to provide magical animals to other magi as familiars or vis sources, meaning that maintaining the menagerie is of primary importance. Mystical Allies (Major Surroundings Boon) could provide a source of livestock if the allies are magical animals. Harvesting the herd might, however, affect the ally relationship. A Chase (Minor Surroundings Boon) is a mundane breeding farm that could serve as a prototype for a magical stud farm, or if combined with another Boon or Hook that allows an aura in the chase, be the actual magical menagerie.

If you are detailing the wealth and poverty of your covenant, pages 56–71, you will need to specify the expenditure cost of the menagerie's animals and handlers. Regular staff cost the same number of expenditure points as Other Covenfolk on the Points of Inhabitants table (page 63), and the overseer specialists count as Specialists. To determine the inhabitants points of each animal, compare it to a horse (1 point). The typical covenant horse is Size +3. For each Size smaller than +3, double the number of animals that cost 1 point. Two Size +2 animals, four Size +1 animals, and eight Size 0 animals all cost 1 point. For larger animals, double the number of points for each Size increase. A Size +4 animal costs 2 points and a Size +5 animal costs 4 points. For carnivores, double the point cost. Keeping a pack of twelve wolves, for example, could cost 3 inhabitants points. A wolf is Size 0. Eight Size 0 herbivores cost 1 point, so four Size 0 carnivores cost 1 point. Four times three is twelve, costing 3 points.

A menagerie could also be used as a realia, a collection of magical examples of typically mundane things (creatures) used for study. Like books, whose author cannot study the book he writes, the collector cannot study the collection. To determine the Quality of the realia, count breeds instead of individual animals, so that a collection of 30 magical horses of 2 breeds counts as a tractatus of Quality 2. A menagerie realia usually provides study only in Magic Lore, however a collection of several different types of magical animals all connected to the same Form could allow study of that Form.

Apprentices


Child Virtues & Flaws (p. 11): Replace the first line with "Characters age 20 and younger".

New Flaws (p. 13): Frail should be a Minor Flaw, not a Major.

A Standard Apprenticeship (p. 16): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph, in the middle column, with "Added to 6 experience points gained from three seasons of Exposure, an apprentice gains 19 experience points a year for eleven years of the apprenticeship." Add a single sentence paragraph. "In the first year, the parens Opens the Arts, so the apprentice gains exposure experience in every season, for 8 experience points." In the next paragraph, replace the text from the third sentence onwards as follows: "Thus, each year the apprentice gains 40 experience points to spend on spells. As learning spells is a Laboratory Activity, the apprentice gains 2 experience points from exposure in every season, for a total of 8 over the year. At the end of the final three years, the apprentice has gained 120 spell levels and 24 experience points. The grand total of 15 years of apprenticeship using this model is 241 experience points and 120 spell levels." Delete the final paragraph.

Controlling Turbulences (p. 23): The Characteristic used for controlling Turbulences is Stamina. Replace "Intelligence" with "Stamina" in the first paragraph and the example in the middle of the second column.

Opening Arts with Supernatural Abilities (p. 35): In the third column, add the following sentence after the second sentence of the paragraph ("...must double the necessary level."). "Boring Supernatural Abilities need not be maintained." Alternatively, replace "exciting" in the second sentence with "existing".

Sight of the Lazy Parens (p. 40): Delete "or if the spell is cast by someone for whom the spell is not specifically designed". Powerful spells cast by the target do not cause immediate Warping.

Life in the Laboratory (p. 54): Replace the last sentence of the first full paragraph in the final column on the page as follows: "If both parens and apprentice have Waster of Vis, for example, the laboratory activity costs twice the normal amount of vis."

Grogs


The Craftsman, Suggested Virtues and Flaws (p. 107): Delete "Animal Companion" from both Apprentice and Journeyman Virtues and Flaws. Replace it with "Carefree".

Apprentice Virtues and Flaws (p. 107): Independent Craftsman should have two asterisks, as it does under Journeyman Virtues and Flaws.

Against the Dark: The Transylvanian Tribunal

Karvuna (p. 8): Change the section heading to "Sunken City".

Village Life (p. 41): In the final sentence of the first column, "wisnets" should be "wisents".

Diplomacy and Intrigue (p. 76): Replace "regions to the east of the Tribunal" with "regions to the west of the Tribunal". Oops.

The Bran Pass (p. 85): Change the first sentence so that it starts: "Running through the Southern Carpathians from Campulung to Kronstadt,".

Tales of Power

Map (p. 92): In the inset map, note that north is to the right, and that the map is not to scale (the islands are shown larger than they are).

Transforming Mythic Europe


New Guidelines for Instant Transportation (p. 107): Increase the Rego Animal and Rego Herbam guidelines to level 10.

Bring the Herd to Market (p. 107): Increase the level to 45, and replace the Base 5 with Base 10.

The Instant Harvest (p. 107): Increase the level to 45, and replace the Base 4 with Base 10.

Faith and Flame


Mimizan (p. 64): In the final paragraph, replace the cross reference with "(see Chapter 3: Hermetic Culture, Cults & Factions of Provence)". Delete the phrase "including Feminine Ceremony" immediately after the cross reference.

Rebecca Ex Miscellenea and Sorgina (p. 65): Drop Feminine Ceremony from her Virtues, and from her Abilities. Increase her Shapeshifting score to 5.

Add the following paragraph on page 69, immediately after the description of Marie of Merinita.

Beatrice of Guernicus, (Presumed) Chief Quaesitor

A troubled woman, Beatrice is genuinely determined to do right, but with the crusade and all the deep hostility in the Tribunal, it is not clear any more what that is. Her pater was the previous Chief Quaesitor, Tibaut, and it is assumed that she will take over for him. She is young for Chief Quaesitor, since her predecessor died of old age just last year (as did his predecessor five years before, though he was even older than her pater), and would probably like to pass her authority to another member of her House if a better candidate appears. She is registered as part of the covenant of Castra Solis, but she has taken to spending all her time in the Arelat of late, possibly because of a falling out with the Primus of House Flambeau or the leaders of one of the Hermetic organizations based there.

Folk Witch Ceremony (p. 93): Cut this Virtue entirely.

Mythic Locations


Author Biographies (p.2): Add Mark Shirley's biography after Matt Ryan's. "Mark Shirley's job description changes every time he writes one of these biographies; but it's all the same really: research in diseases and wildlife conservation with the help of mathematical models. He has spent a lot of time on the Farne Islands; having conducted a puffin survey there he can confirm their magical ability to cause laughter. He's also visited the Majarida Mountains, but didn't see any wolves. He's never been to Purgatory... yet."
